Friday Stamp Simply Challenge - A Sketch

Today's Stamp Simply Challenge is to make a card using the sketch Sharon created below.
Here's the card I made for the challenge.

The stamps are Waltzingmouse - Irish Blessings and Celtic Heritage. I embossed the first panel with Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug folder. The lacey strip is a Martha Stewart punch. The DP strip is a piece of digital designer paper from WMS called Celtic Squares.

I thought this would make a good masculine birthday card with the blue color and minimal frills! Here's what I stamped on the inside of my card today.
